Utility of CT Fluoroscopy Guidance During Percutaneous Sacroplasty With Quality of Life Assessment
To examine, through retrospective and prospective chart review, the difference in pain and mobility, pre and post treatment, as assessed by the patient's completion of the VAS pain scale and Roland Morris Disability Questionnaire (RMDQ).
CT fluoroscopy guidance during percutaneous sacroplasty is an effective treatment for sacro-iliac insufficiency fractures resulting in rapid reduction of pain and improved mobility in patients. This can be effectively assessed using the VAS pain scale and RMDQ both pre and post procedure.
Sacro-iliac Insufficiency Fractures
|Study Design:||Observational Model: Case-Only
Time Perspective: Prospective
|Official Title:||Utility of CT Fluoroscopy Guidance During Percutaneous Sacroplasty With Quality of Life Assessment|
- Reduction of pain and improved mobility in patients post percutaneous sacroplasty effectively assessed using the VAS pain scale and RMDQ both pre and post procedure. [ Time Frame: 2008-2012 ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]The average pre-treatment VAS score was significantly improved after sacroplasty in patients with sacral insufficiency fractures.
|Study Start Date:||January 2008|
|Study Completion Date:||February 2013|
|Primary Completion Date:||May 2012 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)|
The purpose of the study is to report the use of CT fluoroscopy guidance during the performance of percutaneous sacroplasty. In addition, clinical results will be reported with the Roland Morris Disability Questionnaire(RMDQ)pre and post procedure, demonstrating the utility of the RMDQ in assessing improvement in patients pain, mobility and ability to perform activities of daily living.
